  1. Fix the lagging user interface during skype to skype calls

    Fix lagging user interface during Skype to Skype calls. I can not tell when I'm muted, Skype takes long time to respond especially at beginning of call. The other day it took 7 minutes after starting call for me to start to get Skype response on user interface. It seems worse on groups less than 25 members, but UI seems to be considerably laggy for all group calls.

  6. Skype Layout

    Hello, friends!
    I have a suggestion that most of the users may like. We all know that most of the people hate the new Microsoft design. I think it would be GREAT if you add something in the settings that can change the WHOLE Skype layout. (Ringtones, design, settings, UI, etc.)

    For example I have 3 layouts to choose from:
    Microsoft Design (Default)
    Skype 6 Design (Classic)
    First ever Skype version (Old)

    If I choose Microsoft Design nothing would change as this will be the default one.

    If I choose the Skype 6 Design, the app would change EVERYTHING so…

  7. Outgoing Caller ID for Business.

    The closest Skype number I was able to obtain for my business is 100 miles away. I would like my outgoing Caller ID to display my business name instead of the town I am not operating in.

    This confuses clients and they ignore the call as spam.

    Slider to reduce the sound volume because the volume up/down buttons on the android phone are not sufficient.

  12. Aer Lingus Cancellation Policy

    Have you recently booked an airline ticket with Aer Lingus? And now you want to cancel them? Well, cancellation of flight tickets can be overwhelming for some time, but with Aer Lingus, you can cancel your flights without worrying about your refund or fee.

  13. Update the icon for macOS (Big Sur)

    Please update an icon for Skype for macOS (Big Sur). It looks outdated and it's not visually aligned with a new design language of macOS.

  17. UK ringtone for UK Skype number whilst travelling abroad

    I travel extensively and have lost business due to foreign ringtones. Would you be able to override foreign dial tones and have a 24/7 UK ringtone with a UK Skype number?

  20. Enable sending attachments (like pictures) through Skype SMS

    Currently Skype SMS doesn't allow for sending pictures to others who aren't on Skype. You can call, you can text, but for some reason you can't send or receive a picture. Please make this an option!
